Sam Smith Sparks Debate About Age Restrictions Over NSFW New Music Video


The evolution of Sam Smith continues, with the non-binary singer now entering the phase of his career when he simulates being pxssed and jizzed on while wearing a white corset with Nicorette patches (?) on his nipples. Check out the controversial new video for ‘I’m Not Here To Make Friends’ below:

As you might expect, many people are outraged over this video and the idea of young children watching it, with YouTube not applying any age restrictions to it. Others, meanwhile, are celebrating the video as huge W for the queer and body positivity types. Here’s some of the reaction:

I suppose it’s true that Beyoncé or J-Lo or Harry Styles could make a video like this and hardly anyone would complain, so should we just file this one under ‘if you don’t like it, move on’? I guess so but at the same time let’s not get it twisted; this is the exact sort of criticism and publicity Sam Smith will have wanted and expected by putting this video out.

In fact I’m pretty sure someone like Madonna got a similar amount of stick for her work back in the day, but eventually those barriers were broken down and overtly sexual music videos became commonplace. Still, should these sort of music videos come with an age restriction option on YouTube, or should it be up to the parent to monitor everything their child does on the internet? Not sure Sam Smith is too bothered tbh. Dude’s having a ball!
